Champions League Final 2019 – Top 5 Betting Tips!

Top tips for Tottenham v Liverpool CL Final

Champions League Betting

The Champions League Final is one of the biggest games that crops up during the calendar year. It is UEFA’s elite club competition and it is one of the most coveted prizes that there are in club football. It will crown the winner as the best team in Europe and for the first time in four seasons, the feature match doesn’t include Real Madrid.

After their historic third straight title last year (at the expense of Liverpool) Real Madrid bowed out early in this title defence against Ajax. Ajax were knocking on the door of reaching the final before Tottenham’s Lucas Moura stunned them in Amsterdam with a second-half hat trick to gives Spurs the away-goal win in the tie. This is Tottenham’s first ever European Cup Final, while it will be Liverpool’s 9th.

Liveprool toppled Spanish giants Barcelona to get back to the Final. It is a great showdown set then for Madrid between two English sides. This is the seventh Champions League final to feature teams from the same nation in it. It is the second time in the competition that two English teams have met in the showcase match. The first was between Chelsea and Man Utd in 2008.

Here are our top five betting tips for the UEFA Champions League Final 2019.

Betting Tip 1: Both Teams To Score

Let’s kick this off with backing both teams to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from Betfred on May 26th, 2019 at 10:12 p.m.). The reason for this is that a couple of trends that have jumped off the page. Usually, you can look at big finals like this and think that they are going to be cagey, with both teams sitting back, cautiously probing at each other. However, that’s not the way of either of these two sides.

Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between Liverpool and Tottenham across all competitions. That’s the first trend. The second is from Champions League Finals themselves. Each of the last seven editions of the Champions League final have produced a game in which both teams have scored. Two of those incidentally went to penalty shootouts (Chelsea v Bayern Munich 2012 & Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid 2016) and one was settled in extra time (Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid 2014).

Betting Tip 2: Sadio Mane Anytime Goalscorer

Sadio Mane is an 13/8 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken from Betfair on May 26th, 2019 at 10:12 p.m.). Given the way that Liverpool gave up their three goals in last season’s final against Real Madrid, it’s a little easy to forget that Liverpool did get on the scoresheet in the game.

Sadio Mane hauled Liverpool back level in the game just four minutes after Real had taken the lead through Karim Benzema. Benzema’s opener famous came after the Frenchman had simply deflected a throw-out by Liverpool keeper Loris Karius back into the net. Real went on to win thanks to a stunning overhead kick by Gareth Bale who rounded of the scoring with his second with a 40 yard shot that Karius blundered.

Anyway, getting back to Mane then, not only did he score in last season’s final, he has struck the back of the net 13 times in Liverpool’s last 16 games. He has netted four times in this season’s Champions League campaign, making him the joint top scorer for the Reds alongside Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Betting Tip 3: Liverpool 2-1 correct score

Three of Liverpool’s last four wins over Spurs have been by a 2-1 score. A Liveprool 2-1 correct score for the Final is at 13/2 odds with* (Betting Odds were taken from Betfair on May 26th, 2019 at 10:12 p.m.). In the first meeting in the Premier League this season, Liverpool were leading 2-0 at Anfield before Erik Lamela popped up with a last minute goal, which was too little too late for them on the day.

The second meeting also ended in a 2-1 win for Liverpool, with another late goal coming. The game looked to be heading for a 1-1 draw after Spurs had had the Reds on the ropes in the second half of the game. But dramatically Toby Alderweireld scored an own goal in the last minute of the game to give Liverpool the victory.

Betting Tip 4: Over 2.5 goals

These two sides know each other quite well of course. Over 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds for the fixture* (Betting Odds were taken from Betfair on May 26th, 2019 at 10:12 p.m.). Five of the last six contests between the Reds and the Lilywhites have gone over the goal line, so there is a bit of a trend running there.

Looking at the last eight Champions League finals, five of those have made it over the 2.5 goal line as well, including three of the last four. Liverpool are deadly pouring forward and they have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last fourteen games in all competitions. Spurs have one clean sheet in their last eight, so this has a decent chance of getting above the goal line.

Betting Tip 5: Liverpool Half Time

In each of the last three meetings between the two clubs, Liverpool have been leading 1-0 at the halftime break. That has been the half time score in favour of Liverpool any four of the last six Premier League meetings actually. Liverpool to be winning at the halftime break can be backed at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from Bet365 on May 26th, 2019 at 10:12 p.m.).
